NYC Basketball Junkie: Coach, Player, and inspiration
all around the City.
You can’t help but get amped up when you talk to Roman. In this pod, we discuss his early life, growing up in Williamsburg, NY, how he discovered Basketball late, grinding his way to play college and pro, what it’s like coaching middle school and high school, and honoring his father with his Dudo Baez Basketball initiative. All that and more, my conversation with Roman, now.
